I'm new to this forum, as well as new to inground pools. Ours was just installed this summer.
We purchased a Hayward Vacuum and I was wondering the best settings for my pump to use this.
I have a deep drain and two skimmers that I can turn on and off. In order for the vacuum to work, I have to turn the pump all the way up (3450) and turn off the main deep drain, leaving the second skimmer on and the skimmer controlling the vacuum.
It works great this way, and the second skimmer has great suction and keeps the surface clean, but my concern is leaving the pump running at the speed for an extended period of time.
Any opinions on how often to run the vacuum and if the settings are ok?
Also any opinions on what to program the pump to so it doesn't run the electric bill up? I was setting it to 1750 when not in it and 2750 when using it.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
